Medallion Corporate Services
Our Medallion Signature Services extend to shareholdings which are owned by Corporate structures. The purpose of the medallion stamp is to ensure there is no fraud when transferring shares, as such we need to take extra steps to ensure that if any shareholding is owned by a Corporate structure that we are dealing with the correct people authorised to sign on behalf of the corporation.
If your shareholding is owned by a Corporate entity then before being able to transfer holdings you will need to apply a medallion guarantee. Contact us for a list of our requirements in order to facilitate the transfer of holdings.
Before we apply the Medallion Signature Guarantee we need to ensure that any company is in Good Standing, this is a relatively simple process for UK Companies but for some corporate structures it can be an extremely complex matter.
Some corporate structures are shell companies designed to hide ownership, we regret due to the element of fraud we are unable to assist with these kind of structures. we must be dealing directly with the primary shareowner/director who is making the transfer on behalf of a company, some companies have other companies as authorised signatories and the chain goes on and on until you get to an individual, we can only assist when there are actual individuals listed as directors/authorised signatories of the company applying for the stamp.
